Elizabeth’s Restaurant is a neighborhood restaurant that serves authentic New Orleans fare and a restaurant everyone should try. It’s in a classic old house near the Mississippi River in the historic and beautiful Bywater. Elizabeth’s survived Katrina, hung in there through several owners, and has totally triumphed in their desire to bring great southern cuisine to the people.
“Real Food Done Real Good” was a slogan that was brought to Elizabeth’s with the first owner, Heidi Trull. The present owner and Chef Bryon Peck really liked this slogan and decided to keep it. He states his mission is to make all the food from scratch, with great product and to create a comfortable, low-key atmosphere in a place that is approachable and reliable. He has accomplished that and consistently continues to offer customers the best of New Orleans.
I usually go there for breakfast and what a great breakfast it is. I traditionally start with a Bloody Mary ($6), which is generous and delicious. Then I order the Two Egg Basic Breakfast ($6) and their famous Praline Bacon and grits. I also order a biscuit with a side of gravy. It’s pure heaven. I’ve tried many things on Elizabeth’s menu, but I find myself longing for their breakfast and I return time and again.
Other great options and famous Elizabeth’s choices are: Campfire Smoked Rib eye Steak With Hollandaise ($24.50), Panned Rabbit, Brandy-Peppercorn Sauce ($19), Seared Duck Breast With Red Wine Cherry Sauce ($18).
